Ethan Bear of the Edmonton Oilers hockey team says he knows what it’s like to feel “stranded.”
That’s why he’s lending his support to a $3.3 million pilot project to have a team of health workers travel by bus to seven Saskatchewan First Nations.
The five-year project is funded by the provincial and federal governments to the tune of $2.5 million, with another $800,000 to be raised in a capital campaign by non-profit Synergy 8. The travelling team includes a mental health worker, a dentist, a dental assistant and a community paramedic.
